There has been a lot of discussion about loot boxes and how terrible they are lately. Belgium said they were going to investigate them, so did the Netherlands. So Belgium have not yet announced loot boxes are a form of gambling, but wait there’s more! US Congressmen from Hawaii are going to investigating EA and Star Wars Battlefront 2 for predatory gambling practices and the Australian province of Victoria also say loot boxes are gambling. So is this the beginning of the end for loot boxes?
